Last week Gideon got his new hearing aid. Since we had the fluid taken out of his ears and tubes put in, his hearing has improved by leaps and bounds but he still has a bit of a loss. His right ear has normal to mild hearing loss and at this point we don't need to aid it. His left side has a mild to moderate hearing loss. The audiologist questioned if we even needed to aid it because his right ear was doing so well but because of his visual impairment I thought it might have some benefit. So far he has been really tolerant, pulling it out only when he has dropped his toys. When we picked it up the audiologist realized that the company had forgotten to put a lock on the battery case so she gave us a water resistant cover to hold it in place. We've already gotten a call to pick up a new battery door with a lock, but I just haven't made it there yet.
Side Note: When I went to put Gideon's contact lenses in this morning I realized that one of them was ripped. I only have one "spare" one right now. It is a lost lens that I found on the floor in front of the dryer. Pop Quiz - Would you wear a contact lens that most likely went through the washer and dryer?
